And always the changing light:
silver, pewter, moth wing,
oyster shell.

Greys in Jack’s eyes too:
moonlight, unexpected
sunshine, seen through rain.

(Francesca Kay, in An Equal Stillness)

Francesca Kay’s novel (which I have just read) is at times pure poetry – which is why I have presented this two-sentence citation as a poem.
